On your mark...get!

New firsts for me!

Yesterday I drove to work BY MYSELF (since I finally decided to make use of my license) and didn't die! So I got brave today and asked if I could run errands for my mom. I took a movie back to a neighbor, went to the library, and stopped at the bank. I'm still alive and it was even during rush hour! My sister, Panda, said that she didn't ever realize that it was me driving. It didn't bother her at all, and she said I made her less nervous than our parents sometimes.

Squee! I'm becoming more brave! Driving actually isn't that bad. I just like to make left turns at lights, and not many other places though. It's sometimes a little scary trying to race the traffic coming at you from both directions. So I choose not to and rely on little Mr. Green Arrow. :D

My boss told me that this summer he's going to teach me how to drive a stick. That's great, except for one little thing-his car is a Miny Cooper. :-O What if I wreck it?!?!?! Ah, well. If he wants to do it, he can pay for it ;).

Oh, goodness. Driving terrifies me. I don't even know HOW to drive stick--like, not even the THEORY of it.
